Michaela Qvale, President

A senior getting her degree in Film Studies with a Concentration in Business Management, Michaela's entire world revolves around Film and TV. She's currently the Production Manager of the North Fork TV Festival and an intern at AMC Networks in Current Production and Development. Once upon a time an actress, you can still find embarrassing clips of her all over the internet. She works primarily as Producer, AD, and UPM on shoots, but also writes her own material. An OG member of DKA, Michaela used to be the social chair and the treasurer so feel free ask her about any or all of it! She loves baby DKA members!

Lacey Dikkers, Vice PResident

Lacey is a junior in Columbia College majoring in History with a concentration in Classics. Lacey joined DKA in her first semester freshman year, excited about an outlet for her love of films. She has loved all of the opportunities that come with DKA and would not be half as knowledgeable about the entertainment industry without it. She enjoys DKA immensely and looks forward to what the future of DKA will hold.

Caroline Casey, Secretary

Caroline is a senior (graduating January 2019) at Barnard majoring in film. She joined DKA in the fall of 2016 to find a place within the film community. Because of DKA she has found a home with people who have supported and inspired her to continue her film journey. Caroline grew up in Fairfield, Connecticut with a wide variety of pets and is passionate about classical ballet, skiing, the outdoors and music. On weekends, she is equally likely to be taking care of the horses at her childhood barn as she is to be at dance competitions acting like a dance mom for her younger sister.

Xuelong Mu, CINEMATIC AFFAIRS & PRODUCTION

Xuelong, a senior majoring in mechanical engineering, is the current Cinematic Affairs and Social co-chair. He joined DKA in his sophomore year as a change of pace from his engineering studies, and caught the filmmaking bug right away. He's lived on set ever since. Some say you can still see him shooting in the tunnels to this day.
